If you are willing to risk facing your fears then TELUS spark has an event for you.
On the second Thursday of each month, in this case October 8, TELUS Spark is open for extended hours, from 6 to 10 p.m., just for adults.
As always, attendees will have access to a licensed bar service and music throughout the evening.
This adult only night will surely have you outside your comfort zone as you explore Fear and Risk, this month’s featured theme, and how they are connected.
The night will be filled with several exhibits that will allow you to expose, reveal and maybe even overcome some of your fears, along with having guest speakers to talk about the exhibits.
Featured exhibits at TELUS Spark’s Adults Only Night:
Talk: Anxiety and Phobias
Dr. Deborah Dobson is a practicing clinical psychologist from Calgary, and she will be discussing and answering your questions regarding anxiety and fears. You are encouraged to bring your questions, and add them to the anonymous questions box that she will be going through during her presentation to help you better understand your fears and anxiety.
Hall of Phobias
TELUS Spark has put together an exciting platform that allows you to explore some of the most common phobias. This exhibit will expose you to countless phobia-inducing situations, including the fear of germs with the University of Calgary’s Let’s Talk Science Program.
Own Your Fears
This featured activity will allow you to discuss your fears and phobias, and then take ownership of them by creating a Fear Badge to represent a fear you have overcome or are working to overcome.
Take a Risk Experiment
This is a super cool way to participate in a group experiment with everyone who attends Adult Only Night. All visitors will be randomly assigned a ‘Risk Card’ as you enter, but it is up to you to decide whether you are going to take the assigned secret risk. At 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. everyone brave enough will act out the risk that they have received. You will have two opportunities to participate, so if you chicken out in the first time, you have an hour to gain the strength to take a risk the second time around!
